"But more seriously, the future has always been scary and this product certainly has more than its fair share of haters."
You can keep telling yourself that it's all about "hate" and "haters," if it makes you feel better, +Robert Scoble
But in reality, the alleged cynicism and the term like "Glasshole" have very little, if anything to do with the concept itself. As he term is suggesting, the "Glassholes" is referring to certain kind of behaviour, not the new tech. What Google Glass will be a decade from now is an entire different matter.
But for the most part the tech itself is irrelevant here. It's about the people using it. I for one am mostly indifferent about the Google Glass, so far. Seeing them being used is more like a form of entertainment, as long as only a handful of harmless hipster geeks like yourself are using them.
But the problem starts when the gadget becomes mainstream, and every moron will be able to get one. It's a bit like when the smartphones with a camera built in became mainstream; the gadget itself was cool, but in the "wrong" hands they became a major PITA for other people around.
So when the Google Glass will go mainstream, the world will become a whole lot more annoying once again. Not because the tech itself, but because of the hordes of clueless Glassholes.
Besides, what the gadget actually is offering for its price today, not a decade from now, deserves to be criticised, too. If no one did it, it might still be just a dorky geek toy even ten years from now.
